No, not yet. I shall buy some oil today and I thing I have to put the engine in it´s frame to prevent it from tipping over (if it starts). :wink:

I bought the oil today and filled it up. Then I lifted it on to the frame to keep it steady. I will continue tomorrow to fill the cooling water and connect a battery and a bottle of fuel.

Now I have started her and she runs wery nice. It was a little difficult with the first start because the button for cold start was impossible to push in. :? We have a few below zero so the button had been nice to have in order. The oil pressure is 3 bar. It is the second start that is on the video and not the first cold start.

I enjoyed the video, Grani. I even watched twice. I hope to hear that sound myself, some day soon. What are you going to do with it, now that it runs?

It was a lot easyer this time when I knew how it should be done.

The top is still off and I will put it on tomorrow. I have filled the engine with oil and also filled the filter and oilcooler and the oilgrid in the block. I have secured the sleeves and put a hose from the oilchannel for the top back to the sump and then turn the crankshaft with the starter to get oilpressure. It is good for the bearings to get oilpressure without the top on so there is no stress before the oil gets to them. The oilpressure is nearly 3 bar at starter speed. :lol:

Hi Grani,

Great flick! :clap:

Being on your Photobucket-site, I watched your other flick too. :oops:
In one of your flick, you're "starting" the engine, with the enginehead off.
Did you do this for a particular reason?
Best regards,
Pascal

Looks great, Frans!

Are you going to put the air cleaner under the bonnet?
What are you going to use on top of this air cleaner? The original Major "mushroom" (I don't know the original English word :oops: )? Or a bigger one?

Pascal,

The pre air cleaner comes next to the bonnet, the mushroom has the same diameter as the pre air clainer so I will fix that.

Grani,

The front axel is a manuel the transferbox is a roadless,

the next is from a Selene conversion (as they told me)

I think could be a thomas conversion too, the next is roadless
